The Lion Brand Yarn Company today announced the launch of a free, new, email newsletter for yarn crafting geared to ages 5 to 15 entitled "By Kids For Kids" (BK4K). As the title suggests, all of the designs and content are developed and written by students. The new weekly email newsletter will be filled with knit, crochet and craft ideas that are easy enough for beginner crafters, yet right on target with the trends and lifestyle interests of this group. The first issue includes pet toys. Future issues offer room decorating projects, fashion accessories and party favors. The newsletter will also include personal stories and articles submitted by readers. Instructions are in plain English with step-by-step illustrations that even the youngest reader will be able to follow. BK4K offers an opportunity to enhance babysitting time, grandparent visits and family evenings without TV, as well as group events like slumber parties and scout meetings.
"By Kids For Kids" will be the second major email newsletter published by The Lion Brand Yarn Company. It will join the very popular Lion Brand Newsletter which is emailed weekly to over 370,000 subscribers. Kids are encouraged to get their parents permission and subscribe online. The first issue will be emailed to subscribers on Thursday July 7.
